BNMS Spring Meeting 2020 18 - 20th May at the ACC, Liverpool
COVID-19 - BNMS Spring 2020 UPDATE
After careful consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel the BNMS Annual Spring Meeting, originally scheduled for 18 – 20 May in Liverpool. See below instructions for delegates, speakers and exhibitors who support our meetings.
We're very sad to be cancelling our annual meeting and we hope that you will be able to join us in Belfast in 2021.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
We’d like to thank you for your support and your patience and understanding as we navigate this unique and challenging situation.
